Hi, new here, need some advice from people who know more about these things than I do.
I have been thinking a lot about whether or not to upgrade my 5820k @ 3,3ghz to 3700x? and at the same time upgrade my gtx1070 gpu to a 2070super. One of the reasons for this is I got a new monitor that is 1440p (only 75hz tho), and a game like AC Odissey is struggling at that resolution, running in average ~ 30fps. A lot of new games around the corner that I imagine probably won't have lower requirements.
 
5820K has the cores, but lacks clockspeed, being approximately proportionately slower than 7700K at 4.5 GHz, and the 9900K at 5 GHz as it's 3.3 GHz clock speed would indicate, etc...

If you are a gamer, the 3600 or 3700 would be an awesome upgrade, IMO....(I'd personally opt for 8 cores for potential longevity, unless you think you'd upgrade a few years later anyway...)
